Clearasil has recently launched their new Vitamins & Extracts range in Australia and I am excited to share with you my thoughts of their Daily Clear Wash and Mask thanks to Nuffnang!
The Vitamins & Extracts range contains less salicylic acid compared to other Clearasil products making it more mild. The new range aims to improve the condition of your skin through Avocado and Pomegranate Extracts in their new formula, which helps the skin looking and feeling healthy, as well as Vitamin E and glycerine to help nourish and hydrate the skin.
Fun fact: In a trial conducted by Clearasil, over 74% of people said they loved the way the Daily Clear Vitamins & Extracts products made the skin look and feel; with 71% claiming that it made their skin feel clearer and healthier (results of 135 users in beautyheaven blind test Australia, 2012).
WHERE TO BUY: It is available for $10.99 at your local supermarket such as Woolworths or other stockists.
FORMULA: As mentioned earlier, it is formulated with avocado and pomegranate extracts giving it a fruity scent and adding benefits to the skin. It also contains Vitamin E, glycerine, anti-oxidants and less salicylic acid compared to others. The product itself is a light green, creamy formula that doesn't foam up and the consistency is a bit on the runny side.
As a facial wash, I really enjoyed using this when I first received a small sachet sample. I found it really refreshing to use and gentle on the skin with the creamy formula. It didn't make my face feel dry nor did it irritate it, and overall it cleansed well enough and left my skin feeling soft and smooth. Even though it's recommended to use twice per day, I only used it once because I find washing my face in general with products will dry it out.
As a mask, you are supposed to leave it on for up to three minutes on a wet face then rinse it off. Maybe about a minute or so into using it, my skin was extremely irritated as I was experiencing a burning sensation around my cheeks and had to quickly rinse it off. I wouldn't say my skin is sensitive but I do find a number of products being too strong for my cheek area such as this. So maybe this would perform different on you since everyone's skin is different.
Overall, I do love their new product but would only continue using it as a wash since the mask didn't work out for me. I didn't experience any break outs, luckily, and I think it's a nice product for an every day face wash.
